I needed a quickie project so I decided to whip up this fun bracelet. Sequin Cuff Bracelet
Size US 9 (5.5 mm) needles. (I used straight/cheapie metal needles to minimize any chance of damaging my 'good' needles)
Any color 'single strand' sequins - I used matte silver. I bought three yards to be safe but did NOT use all of it!
Gauge is unimportant - you just need to be able to get your needles and sequins around each other!
Three buttons (I used two vintage buddha buttons from ebay with a bubbly little clear one in the center)
Sewing thread to match the 'strand' (or thread) that the sequins are already strung on
Cast on 8 stitches (or as many as you need to make this the width you desire).
Work in garter stitch until the bracelet meets around your wrist (remember that your bind off will add a bit more)
Weave your ends in a bit and then sew with needle and thread through these ends so it won't unravel but, more importantly, so your sequins don't start falling off the ends of the strand!
Use same needle and thread to sew the three buttons on evenly spaced.
I intended to sew some elastic loops on to button this up but these buttons just
fit through my bind off row.
Please keep in mind that it is a bit of a struggle to get these sequins around each other as you are knitting. I was being very deliberate and fussy in the beginning but then got quite a bit rougher towards the end. I lost a few sequins here and there but you absolutely can't tell because of the density.
Next time I do this I will take the time to get elasticated single strand sequins to make the final product more user friendly. Although having said that, I think it might possibly increase the difficulty of knitting it in the first place...hmmmm.
Well enjoy and if you decide to make one - post so we can see!!
